This is a poem that hung in the hall, at the head of the stairs, in the house I grew up in. I have tried to live by it successfully.
Let me live in the house by the side of the road and be a friend to man.
The men that are good and the men that are bad as good and as bad as I
I would not sit in the scorner's seat or hurl the cynic's ban,
Let me live in the house by the side of the road and be a friend of man,
The race is run, The job is done, The golden chariot has come.
"Let there be peace on earth"
Please sign Edward's guestbook. Thank you.
